A Conversation with Robert Mark Kamen

July 12, 2015 @ 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join us as we welcome Robert Mark Kamen (writer The Fifth Element, Lethal Weapon 3, and The Karate Kid, Taken, and Transporter films) for a conversation on writing action, establishing worlds, and conquering “continuation stories”. Kamen will explore his long-time working relationship with Luc Besson and how he manages to avoid the action-writer’s major struggle: writing in a director’s voice. This conversation will take us through the art of description, violence, and character development, and how to use these elements to further the story and convey the tension that will appear on screen.

General Admission tickets are $10. Students and AFF Member tickets are only $5.
